I thought this was worth having its own discussion.

 Yes, I'd pay quite a few people prior to paying the board. Some of the
things the board does are much more operational items than what a truely
strategic board would do. To me if we were to start paying people to do
those things we would hire someone to do it rather than pay ourselves.
Dorothea over the past year has helped immensely in this way, so there
already is a precedent.
